Sex for Rent - Raised in the Dail as issue of major concern

https://www.thejournal.ie/sex-for-re...14013-Sep2019/

I fail to see how this warrants being raised in the Dail, let alone with Gardaí. Maybe it is because I am a man, but if given the option for free rent in exchange for sleeping with the female landlord (assuming roles are reversed) I would absolutely take that opportunity. I certainly wouldn't feel the need to raise it with the Gardaí or my local politician if I didn't actually want to do it.

Ruth Coppinger is an attention seeking clown.
Plenty of dirty bastards, always has always will be.

She's an embarrassment of a politician.

Of all the actual issues in the country so has to resort to this horse**** to get her name in the headlines.

Strange how she is usually quiet on issues that may require some research and a bit of work.

The issue was that the offer was only for females.

Don't reverse the roles.
You are both men.
Would you still go ahead?
If no, why not?

Or make the landlady 85 years old.

Did Coppinger feel excluded?

First one I couldn't as I'm not gay, that'd be stomach churning/I can't live with myself type stuff.

Second option, I dunno, thinking back to being in college and skint... It'd involve some social lubricant (Guinness) but yea it could be a yes.

A man? No.
An 85 year old woman? It depends what the rent is.

Either way, I have the ability to trade sex for cash and, as men, this is not something we get to do generally in the same way as women. My point is that, as a guy, if the roles are reversed it is just not an issue. Therefore, I'm trying to understand how this could be as big a deal as to warrant raising it in the Dail.

Man, no, i'm not gay.

85yo, would depend on the rent. But if it was a 2 pumps and an apology type scenario, why not?

She reminds me of that one female teacher in school that dressed like a drunk dishevelled librarian and would spend a little too long staring at the boys.

You mean people elect lazy seatwarmers that just specialize in making quips and soundbytes? Utter shock

If it were a male landlord? What if he grabbed your arse and told you you looked very pretty?
Not a stones throw from the aul' 'Rape? sure who wouldn't like surprise sex?' theory with that OP
